CHAMPAIGN EIGHT ASK YOU TO SIGN THEIR PETITION
TO END RACIAL DISCRIMINATION
SIGN THEIR PETITION: TELL DRURY THEY WERE WRONG!
What was supposed to be the happiest day for Raven (11), turned out to be a nightmare for her and her 8 friends. While in the swimming pool, a white woman called the children NIGGERS and said her kids aren't going to swim in the pool with niggers. The white woman even PUSHED ONE OF THE CHILDREN..
When Ms. Washington (Raven's mom) discussed the concern with the front desk they were treated rudely, told they were lying, and told to just leave. The white woman was back in the pool as the black children left.
The children cried out in tears," WHY DO WE HAVE TO LEAVE!"
Too often blacks are automatically treated negatively. Our children deserve to grow up in a better world than that.
